This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances. In 2011 Yessíca Torres de Marín co-opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. Keeping focused on emerging and mid-career artists, H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. Yessíca still owns H Gallery, which is now one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area. With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established Dab Art in 2014. Mainly focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s current inventory of international artwork is available for purchase online. Our partnership with Arsty has greatly expanded our collector visibility, elevating the Dab Art sales experience.

The Concern Newsstand has such a name because of a concern that the world is falling to distracted mindlessness and that we’re all reading from physical, paper objects less and less. A ‘concern’ is also the name of a ‘business’. The Chapel Hill / Carrboro, NC area no longer has m/any used book or magazine stores. The Newsstand is offering this service to the community. It is also a venue for local artists & artists from beyond to sell their printed materials & limited edition products. Housed in a gallery & among artist studios, it is a meeting spot & hang out place. The curated focus is to expand one’s mind in some way beyond the mundane via artist books, comics, art books, magazines, small press publishers, used books, vintage magazines & more. The curator & artist behind this project is Orvokki Crosby. The Concern has a long-term outpost at Lump Gallery (505 S. Blount Street, Raleigh, NC 27601) where materials can be browsed and purchases can be made during gallery hours (Thu- Sat, 12-6pm) AND a showroom/ reading room/ workshop at Attic 506 (506A W.

Overnight Projects is an artist-run, curatorial concept steered by artists and creative practitioners whose work shows critical observation and purpose. We consider projects with artists a partnership of shared labor, driven by curiosity, experimentation, and a commitment to connection and conversation. Founded in 2015 and directed by Abbey Meaker with support from Meara McGinniss, Rachel Jones, and a small group of invaluable volunteers, we organize experiential installations and idea-driven artworks and events in revolving locations, including transitional spaces and traditional gallery settings. Notable past sites include an 1800s orphanage, a defunct coal-plant, a 1950s lakeside motel, and a cornfield on the cusp of reverting back to a wetland. Art is one of few remaining platforms where critical engagement can take place and (hopefully) shift perception and action in meaningful ways. The unique and inventive expression of ideas through art offers a chance and hope for a more inclusive, compassionate, and intelligent world. That is what we are continually working for.

window is a site-specific, minimalist exhibition space envisioned as a platform for contemporary image makers who engage with issues of re-production and re-presentation within their practice via political, philosophical, theoretical, poetic and/or process-based frameworks. window welcomes two-dimensional printable works that repurpose found or archival source materials, challenge notions of originality and authenticity, stimulate perceptual phenomena through reiteration or duplication, implement re-photography as a critical component, or embrace re-production as essential to the work. window installs 4-6 new artworks per year, designed exclusively for the space by the artist, or in collaboration with the curator. The site consists of a 58 in x 51.5 in surface area of a downtown Asheville, North Carolina storefront with ample visibility to the passing public. window invites artists to realize new works, designed and conceptualized to complement the discourse and format of the site, and also encourages the re-contextualization of pre-existing works. Mission Statement window values original objects and aesthetic precision, but does not find these aspects essential to every viewing experience. window promotes the exchange of ideas and dialogue through engagement with visual representation. window does not fetishize process or material and disavows the treatment of artworks as precious and unique. window does not promote commerce. window celebrates re-production.

WPA supports artist-driven projects, advocacy, and dialogue so that artists can live, work and flourish. WPA invites artists to conceive of programs that showcase the work or ideas of other artists (or creative thinkers, scholars, activists, etc.) and then supports them with money, introductions/connections, idea-development, planning & production, communications, marketing and promotion. In our view, artist-driven programming combines the best of two existing models—“artist-run” and “artist-centered”. It is closer in intent to the former than the latter because artists are curating everything—exhibitions, performances, talks, workshops, screenings, platforms, etc. Yet it provides a degree of professional support and organizational stability that an “artist-run” organization might not.

Push/Pull’s mission is to: Promote underground art and comics Foster community between those creating and viewing art Encourage emerging artists, illustrators and cartoonists Innovate the way art is consumed by presenting it in a unique environment and with nontraditional events Stimulate Diversity by actively seeking out marginalized and under-represented artists Underground art is work that challenges the viewer to feel something, to think about something. Art that is made by professionals that learned all the rules about making art and then broke them. Art that is made by professionals that never learned any of the rules about making art and made it up as they went along. It’s creepy, weird, controversial, strange. Push/Pull exists to show the alternative possibility of what an art gallery can be. In order to further our mission we’ve created a nonprofit section of our business that is powered by Shunpike.
